Hi!  It’s me!  Lily!

I’m full of cookies.  I mean seriously full of cookies.  Sabby seriously overbaked for Christmas, and we’ve been slowly whittling down the cache.  We’re making a dent in it, but it’s slow going.  I love chocolate, but this is ridiculous!  We gave another batch to Liz’s family, and even dropped some off at Crystal’s, and we’re still swimming in cookies.  I think next year we’re gonna hold an intervention.  there’s cookies, and then there’s cookies.  I never thought I’d be tired of cookies, but I’m tired of cookies!

Oh well, good problem to have, I suppose.

Jack and I have been chatting.  It’s a little different now that we’ve made it “official”.  He tells me a little more than he used to – he’s still the same Jack, but he’s letting me in a little more, and it’s sweet.  He’s a nice guy.  But he has his problems too.  I’m not going to go into them here, but he has his problems.  I have my problems too.  Sabby keeps telling me how trusting and afraid of abandonment I am, and I guess she’s right.  I really don’t like it.  But I guess it’s just something I have to work on.  Jack keeps reassuring me he’s not going anywhere.  I believe him.

I was looking up Ohio on Google Maps.  He lives near Columbus, but there are other cities too, and they all seem a bit dingy.  There’s Cleaveland, and Cincinati, Toledo, Dayton…  and they’re all losing population.  Here in Texas where I live it’s been booming, so many people moving here.  I see California plates everywhere.  I read that Columbus is growing in Ohio, but nowhere else is.  But he seems to like it there.  I guess I’d like the rain – they seem to get more rain.  And I’ve never seen snow except for in pictures, it seems pretty.  I’d throw a snowball at Jack!  Then he’d throw a snowball at me and we’d have a snowball fight!  Then we’d go back into the house and snuggle up and have hot chocolate by the fire… mmm…  sounds really nice.

Anyway, this is a random post.  New Years Eve is tomorrow night and as I said, we might not do too much, but maybe we’ll eat a lot of cookies.  It’s not like we’re going to run out.  I really need to have a talk with that woman!

Love you all!!! ❤
